Everyone knows that if you play with fire you’ll end up getting burned…
What happens when you attend a first responder’s bachelor auction with your best friends? Well, if your name is Madison Kelly like me, your friends end up bidding on a date for you with your high school crush.
That’s right. Even back when I was ‘Fatty Maddie’ to all my classmates, I had eyes for the quarterback of our football team. Not like I was the only one.
Mauro Bianco may fight fires for a living, but he still sets my heart ablaze. One look at the rugged, muscular man he’s turned into and I want to slide down his pole.
One date. That’s all I’m committed to. A few hours and I can tuck him back into that tattered old shoebox in my closet.
As always, the universe has other plans. I never would’ve predicted that in a matter of days he’d turn from my dream guy into my business partner — and that’s when things got interesting.
My Review: 4 stars
When Madison’s friends bid on her high school crush at a first responder’s auction, she has no idea what she is going to do. Mauro is the guy she was dreamed about for years, but he is also the guy who doesn’t remember her from high school or remember their kiss on night at a bonfire.
Mauro is used to getting what he wants. When the girl who won a date with him at an auction is stand-offish, he doesn’t understand what is going on.
Madison and Mauro end up working together by some crazy luck. But that doesn’t mean they are going to fall instantly in love.
Add in 2 crazy best friends, 2 crazy brothers, a grieving widow, and some really deep self-esteem issues.
Madison and Mauro get their HEA but it’s not an easy road to get there.
I also love Piper Rayne’s books. I know I’m going to be happy at the end of it but I never know the path that will get me to that happy ending.
About the Authors:
Piper Rayne, or Piper and Rayne, whichever you prefer because we’re not one author, we’re two. Yep, you get two USA Today Bestselling authors for the price of one. Our goal is to bring you romance stories that have “Heartwarming Humor With a Side of Sizzle” (okay…you caught us, that’s our tagline). A little about us… We both have kindle’s full of one-clickable books. We’re both married to husbands who drive us to drink. We’re both chauffeurs to our kids. Most of all, we love hot heroes and quirky heroines that make us laugh, and we hope you do, too.
